637QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowViewports / View ListAssigned
0%
Task Description

1. The Scrollbars for each window in the Viewports has the same size like the normal used scrollbars for windows. If you are working on a normal size Monitor it “steals” a lot of “working space”. Is there any possibility to make the scrollbars smaller or just a line to separate the windows so that I have to navigate with Keyboard and mouse?

2. I thing the Viewports and the View List belongs together - is it possible to get a button in the “View List / Tool Bar” to choose a Viewport style instead of “walking” the long way over the “Drawing preferences” Menu?

 629 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Viewports - not retaining positions? Closed
100%
Task Description

in Win 7-64

Hi Andrew
when I set up my default choice of viewports - say ‘Two vertical’, they do not retain either the initial starting position or indeed the position I leave them in when I reopen a drawing. On opening a new/previous drawing - always one of the viewports is at ‘almost’ full extents!
I then have to manually re-position my viewports to suit.

Is this normal behavior happening here?
It would be good if a drawing opened with persistent viewport positions held, possibly this option could be added to the ‘Layout’ Viewports dialog window?

*Out of interest, when you introduce an isometric grid in the future - will it be possible to set up a ‘Three:Right’ layout view for example and have all three viewports showing different planes - Top, Front and South East?

Thanks

Clive

 1661 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Viewport rotation issue Closed
100%
Task Description

Case:

1. Launch Add Viewport, adjust setting for scale and rotation, determine Viewport - QCAD will switch to a Layout Block
= scale and rotation works as expected.

2. Launch Add Viewport, determine Viewport - QCAD will switch to a Layout Block,

change scale setting = works as expected on view and frame,

change rotation = works on view BUT NOT ON VIEWPORT FRAME.

1915QCAD (main)SuggestionLowViewport does not rotate view-port when changed in pape...Assigned
0%
Task Description

To reproduce

1. Select a new view-port in model-space
2. Select the appropriate paper-space
3. When the paper space opens change the angle of the viewport.

Actual

The object in the viewport changes but the viewport itself remains unchanged

Expected

That both the view-port and the object changes angle as the angle is updated

Motivation

If you abort the placement (but keep the angle) and go back to model-space and then redo the operation the view-port is rotated along the angle. It seems that the viewport only picks up the initial angle once the paper-space is open and ignores any changes thereafter

Workaround

1. Select the view-port per normal in model-space
2. Open the paper-space and set the wanted angle but do not place the view-port in paper space
3. Abort the placement on paper-space and redo the whole operation

Once the paper space is opened again the view-port will have the chosen angle

705QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowVerwaltung Library Resourcen und Favoriten ....Assigned
0%
Task Description

Ob dies ein Feature Request oder ein Bugreport ist weiß ich nicht ....

Hier meine Gedanken ....

In den Application Preferences kann ich mehrere Library Sources vorgeben. Ich habe eine auf dem HD und eine auf einen USB angegeben.

Wenn ich nun QCad auf der HD ausführe habe ich beide Ressourcen zur Verfügung. Schön! Natürlich habe ich auch im Library Browser meine Favoriten von beiden Ressourcen angegeben.

Wenn ich nun aber den USB entferne zeigt mir der Library Browser immer noch beide Resorcen als Name an - schalte ich nun um auf die USB Resource bekomme ich keinerlei Hinweis das diese momentan nicht zur Verfügung steht. Es passiert einfach NIX ;-) Es wäre schön wenn ich hier eine “Nicht verfügbar” Meldung bekommen würde.

Wenn ich nun meine Trotteligkeit bemerke und den USB wieder einstecke habe ich logischerweise wieder meine Library zur Verfügung ..... nur die auf den USB Stick verweisenden Favoriten sind auf Nimmerwiedersehen verschwunden. Die auf dem HD bleiben erhalten!

OK - um es ganz rund zu machen ein anderes Szenarios in “Steno”:
QCad Start vom USB - > Library Favoriten anlegen auf USB Library - > QCad schließen - > USB entfernen → QCad auf HD starten - > Library Favoriten auf USB sind verschwunden - > QCad HD schließen - > USB einstecken und QCad von USB starten = Favoriten auf USB bleiben verloren!

Wäre es hier nicht möglich die Favoriten Information dem USB mit auf dem Weg zu geben? Wenn ich eine Favoriten Auswahl auf dem USB nicht kontrollieren kann macht diese Möglichkeit kaum Sinn.

1936QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowver 3.23 not saving font informationAssigned
0%
Task Description

The attached file is not saving font preference.
All fonts on the online layer are reported as the standard font. If I highlight one or all of the text entities and change the font to something like Yu gothic light, the property page reports yu gothic light and the screen reflects the changed font.
If I save, close and reload, the fonts for all text is again “standard”.

So then I try to enter new text via the “A” draw text command icon. I select “Broadway.ttf” as the main font in the text entry dialog.
One word “Broadway” is entered as the text. it appears on the upper left of the screen as expected and the font name is Broadway in the property editor. If I look at the dxf file source there is a whole bunch of text styles.
I save and close the file, and then open it again. Now the word Broadway has changed to font name “standard” in the property editor and is very definitely not the Broadway.ttf font.

I am not the originator of the file, I am just trying to change the font. If I start a new file and enter new text the font saves just fine, so I am thinking it is a setting somewhere, but I am unable to find it.

We (me and my customers) use these files for engraving so exact font is critical.

724QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowUseless reference point entering when moving relativelyAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,
this is a usability feature request:

If you want to move an object relatively to any point (e.g. by entering @x;y in commandline) it does’nt make sense to enter a starting reference point. Of course this is possible by clicking to any location on the screen. But it’s difficult to change between mouse and keyboard so often.

It should be possible to enter a “don’t care” or “any” reference point by pressing a keyboard shortcut (e.g. enter like in AutoCAD).

Thx

 117 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Use APPID when handling extended entity data to prevent ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Rationale:

Let QCAD handle extended entity data, that is used in the industry to instruct postprocessing applications, e.g. the tooling of a mill or robot.

When I say group code or specs below, I refer to this document http://www.autodesk.com/techpubs/autocad/acad2000/dxf/extended_data_dxf_ab.htm

Current:

In the property editor I can add key value pairs to drawing entities. As in this script:

entity.setProperty(new RPropertyTypeId("MY_KEY"), "MY_VAL");
entity.setProperty(new RPropertyTypeId("MY_REAL"), 123);

In DXF this results in a group code “QCAD” followed by alternating keys and values as strings and typed positions respectively:

[…]
  0
LINE
[…]
1001
QCAD
1000
MY_KEY
1000
MY_VAL
1000
MY_REAL
1040
123.0
[…]

Expected:

From reading the specs, this looks perfectly valid. I’d say though, that QCAD is not right to expect any extended data to follow this pattern. The extended entity data, that I want to recreate eg, looks like this:

[…]
  0
LINE
[…]
1001
MY_DATA
1000
MY_FOO: some text
1000
MY_BAR: 1.250000
[…]

That is: a group code, followed by some string values. Notice that the (limited) typing facilities mentioned in the spec are not used, but the application relies on its own peculiar parsing. The same group code appears in the head of the document as an APPID:

[…]
  0
APPID
  2
MY_DATA
 70
     0
  0
[…]

Proposed:

I suggest, that QCAD uses APPIDs to group extended data. Otherwise data loss may occur. In order to not have to maintain a table of known APPIDs, that tells how to parse their extended data, I further suggest that QCAD not expect extended data to follow a “key value” pattern but an “APPID entries” pattern. Here too data would be lost, if there was an odd number of entries in the extended table and QCAD insisted on its own approach.

Within the specs, deep trees could be constructed with the use of the control string (code 1002, { and }), and the propertyEditor would become a nightmare;) So I propose, that QCAD might parse only extended data with its own APPID in key value pairs, and data with other APPIDs as just an ordered list of entries. (In ECMAscript an array will have to be used, as object properties do not keep sequence.)
